Atlas of Coronary Balloon Angioplasty
An atlas for both invasive and non-invasive cardiologists, devoted to balloon coronary angioplasty, which represents more than 95% of all angioplasty procedures worldwide. Typical, illustrative examples are described, along with a few uncommon ones which, notwithstanding, anyone can come across in the catheterization laboratory. Stenting is considered an integral part of balloon angioplasty and is mentioned liberally. The examples in the atlas were selected from over 5,000 angioplasty cases performed by the authors.
